We selectively represent fiction. Most often, our clients come to us already well-known in their fields as original thinkers or voices—they are business leaders, scientists, or bring a strong media or online profile. But sometimes, there is just a great title concept. Or a great story that requires a professional writer. We help develop books from the ground up. Lucinda Literary selectively represents fiction. We look for voice-driven, emotionally raw, and often unconventionally told novels for adults and young adults. In children’s books, we seek stories that transport us and break new ground, much in the way our adult books do. Lucinda Literary’s Speakers Bureau was founded in 2016 to offer lecture opportunities and relationships to all Lucinda Literary authors, along with a select list of authors represented by our colleagues. Bringing a background in marketing, along with media and film relationships, we are above all strategists and advocates not just for the books, but for the entire careers of our authors. We take on a small number of new clients by design, which allows us to be hands-on, attentive, and editorially invested. Lucinda Literary also has a private Letter Better Facebook group, which is only accessible to those who have participated in one of our workshops, consultations, or courses. We do not accept membership requests from those who have not taken part in one of our programs. If you are interested in registering for our programs, please visit www.lucindaliterary.com/workshops
